Transmissible Disease Precautions

Below are some of the precautions I am doing at the Rochester office (this is not a comprehensive list). Where possible, I adapt these precautions to the Indy office.

  • Clients are emailed a personal symptom checklist 24 hours prior to session. If answering yes to any of the symptoms, they are rescheduled at no extra cost when their health is clear again. Symptom checklist includes normal cold/flu, allergy, and relevant global spreading diseases. This symptom checklist is also included in the health form paperwork filled out prior to the start of the first session.
  • I do not allow walk in customers, all sessions are by appointment only, with prescreened clients.
  • My office in Rochester has an air system that is just for our massage room, and a fan to the roof
    that pulls old air out to support fresh air for each session. Also, I also use a triple method air purification unit designed for large spaces in my small room. It includes “True HEPA” filter, UV light, and generating negative ions. This unit will be running continuously in the therapy room in addition to the overhead vent and single air system running.
  • Sanitizing and sterilizing: I wipe down with antibacterial/antiviral wipes appropriate surfaces in the therapy room between each client. This includes chairs, massage tools, lubricant bottles, massage table, face cradle, light switch, doorknobs, pens, and table top surfaces. Massage tools are sterilized with UV light before use. Relevant bathroom touch surfaces are wiped down with antibacterial/antiviral wipes before and after each session.
  • Masks: optional. It is your right to self determine if you will wear one; you are responsible for your own health and managing risk for yourself at all times. If you require that I wear one when working with you, I can. Just ask, it’s not a problem.
  • I change all the PPE I wear after each client, including mask and apron.
  • All dirty massage linens are removed after each session, including blanket, pillowcase covers, sheets, etc. Dirty linens are stored in a separate room in a covered container, or laundered immediately. New linens are sealed in ziplock bags until use.
  • I ask that my clients be aware of their health status and not put me at risk if they are sick or fighting something off. I do not work with clients when they are experiencing cold/flu, allergy or the latest global disease symptoms, no matter how mild.
  • I have a firm policy that I do not work with clients in the one month time frame after receiving a vaccine of any kind, including a booster shot. If you are scheduled for a session in this window of time, let’s reschedule, at no additional cost to you.
  • If you are immunocompromised and wish to be the first client of the day as an extra precaution, contact me and we can plan ahead.
  • Clients remain in their vehicles until invited in at the time of their session. There is no waiting room.
